Lomatium, Osha, and Spikenard are stimulants that may support the vital life-energy capacity of the circulatory, respiratory, and immune systems. “Forest Breath” combines these invigorating allies that may enhance the body’s natural ability to resist infections, especially of the respiratory.
These herbs are invigorating allies, revealed by the nature of their umbrella-like flowers that are called umbels in plant science, relating to energetic storm cloud formations and vigorous forests.
They originate in the wild of nature as plants that have adapted to deep forest environments, creating warming aromatic roots as a defense against harmful micro-organisms. Thus, the energy of invigoration is spurred by a close connection to elemental Fire, as indicated by the intuition.
Similarly, human bodies naturally stimulate or activate responses when the vital life-energy capacity of elemental Fire within the body has been threatened by infection, especially of the respiratory system. In this case, one may notice effects of cold, deficiency, or weakness, and will look towards warmth and decompression to allow for the vital life-energy to regain its’ power.
Prayer: I wish to be invigorated by the vital life-energy within, as I honor each breath of fresh air.
Lomatium, Osha, and Spikenard are strongly warming, aromatic-stimulants that may enhance life-energy capacity of elemental Fire to relieve coldness and cleanse toxicity from infection.
These herbs are respiratory expectorants that may promote relief from congestion of mucus and difficulty in breathing. And, as toxicity-cleansing, diaphoretic herbs that may induce sweating, they may promote relief from common colds, flu, and fever. Also, with antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects, they may promote relief from microbial infection and inflammation.
Lomatium (Lomatium dissectum)
Lomatium is an invigorating ally (see “Forest Breath” description above), and a stand-out remedy that may promote relief from infection of the respiratory and difficulty in breathing.
Lomatium may stimulate functions of the circulatory, respiratory, and immune systems.
Herbal actions of Lomatium may promote relief from:
- Microbial infection and inflammation (antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory)
- Congestion of mucus and difficulty in breathing (respiratory, expectorant)
- Common colds, flu, and fever (toxicity-cleansing, diaphoretic)
Natural elemental quality of Lomatium may enhance:
- Fire, life-energy capacity (warming, aromatic-stimulant)
CAUTION: Avoid during pregnancy. May cause a skin rash in some individuals.
Osha (Ligusticum porteri)
Osha is an invigorating ally (see “Forest Breath” description above), and is an especially sacred herb in some indigenous healing traditions of North America, which have observed this powerful cleansing remedy for millennia.
Osha shares similar stimulating qualities, herbal actions, and the natural quality of elemental fire with Lomatium (see above).
Spikenard (Aralia racemosa)
Spikenard is an invigorating ally (see “Forest Breath” description above), and is a moderately stimulating herb in comparison to Lomatium and Osha. Spikenard shares similar adaptogenic constituents with Ginseng, a closely related botanical and remedy, which may help to support resistance to stress and general feelings of balance or well-being.
Spikenard shares similar stimulating qualities and herbal actions with Lomatium (see above).
Spikenard shares the natural quality of elemental fire with Lomatium (see above), and may enhance subtle awareness of elemental Ether, as an inspiring, floral herb.
